We are not allowed to distribute the distfile on the CD-ROMs, I think:
Reproduction and Distribution. You may reproduce and distribute an unlimited
number of copies of the SOFTWARE PRODUCT; provided that each copy shall be a
true and complete copy, including all copyright and trademark notices, and
shall be accompanied by a copy this EULA. Copies of the SOFTWARE PRODUCT may
not be distributed for profit either on a standalone basis or included as part
of your own product.
